It's not this year, it's been like this since the beginning, but specially since Zuffa took over.

Giving there fans (customers) what they want is gonna bite them in the ass? Would McDonalds be more sucessful if they chose what you got to eat? In most sucessful buisiness, the customer is always right.

majority does. Well kinda.

The Mir hate is far from justified and I don't see any reason why a not well known guy like Werdum, who has already lost against Nog, should have been in TUF instead of Mir. Specially because he was far from being a clear #1 contender too.
Werdum is hard to market while people love Mir. They both deserved the shot about as much/little. It has nothing to do with Werdum hate when they chose Mir instead of him for that fight.

I do agree Brock vs. Randy for title was bs. If Randy wouldn't have the belt anymore that fight would make more sense and no-one would have been disrespected by doing it. HW division is extremely weak compared to any other division and that fight will actually be a good one, so Im not pissed off at all that they did it.

Norway I disagree, I think you got it backwards what the UFC has the other orgs dont is the casual fan, hardcore fans will watch anything MMA, the casual fan watches "Ultimate Fighting"

Werdum is getting screwed in this whole situation. He deserves a title shot should be getting one soon.

However nothing can be done about it. Fabricio will beat any of the guys fighting for the title right now and would in fact IMO walk through everyone of them besides Nog.

I really don't know what Werdum is complaining about? He acts like he got passed over for an ex-wwe star that almost got his leg ripped off by Frank Mir in his UFC debut and won a decision victory against a B-ranked fighter! oh wait....

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
